I assume the one that is being realeased tomarrow, the gold fully finished game, just some things taken out, civs and maps. But they would NOT give an old demo and stuff.

They're including a demo CD in the collectors edition? That seems kind of pointless, as you have the full game right there... oh well, I guess it's for memoralia.

Demo on a disc for the collectors edition is intended to spread the good news. Promotion tool. You have the game. You show the demo disc to your friends so thay can try it. They like it and they buy the game. MS are then happy. And everyone will live happily after.

What, do you think?
In fact, no, I'm sure they will only put build one on the demo disk with the CE

Heh, theyre only keeping PC games in cardboard boxes right now so you can tell em different from an Xbox game in the store.

Theyll be switching to the dvd-case style soon, ill bet.

In Europe and Australia, they already have. I think so, anyway, someone from the RCT3 forums told me a while ago.

actually we still have both

DS2 & HL2 for example came in a box. DOW Winter Assault came in dvd box. I think it depends on developers / release departments.

EA tend to re release in dvd boxes (Generals etc)

We have got our games in an DVD case for years here in Sweden.

it doesn't make much difference. games still costs the same at the end of the day. I kinda think non dvd boxes are pointless. waste of space etc, just wish we'll get a lower price due to lesser packaging =p

Yes, but the instruction booklets for games sucks nowadays. They are usually about 10 pages and contains a lot of misleading information (*cough*AoMtech-treesheet*cough*). I remember when those manuals were good for bedtime-reading.

I got the Gold Edition of HL2, it came in a DVD style case.

It would be nice if they came with a stats booklet, but that's what readme's and fan sites are for I guess.
